    NY Times caves to staff revolt

    Paper disavows Tom Cotton op-ed.

    The New York Times announced Sunday that Editorial Page Editor James Bennet is resigning -- amid reports of anger inside the company over the publication of an op-ed from Sen. Tom Cotton about the George Floyd unrest last week.

    Bennet had apologized late last week after previously defending the piece, titled, "Send in the Troops." Cotton, R-Ark., called for the government to deploy troops to help quell riots and looting that emerged amid the anger over Floyd's death in Minneapolis police custody last month.

    "The journalism of Times Opinion has never mattered more than in this time of crisis at home and around the world, and I’ve been honored to be part of it," Bennet said in a statement. "I'm so proud of the work my colleagues and I have done to focus attention on injustice and threats to freedom and to enrich debate about the right path forward by bringing new voices and ideas to Times readers."

    For his part, Cotton has criticized the Times for distancing itself from the op-ed.

    "The New York Times editorial page editor and owner defended it in public statements but then they totally surrendered to a woke child mob from their own newsroom that apparently gets triggered if they're presented with any opinion contrary to their own, as opposed to telling the woke children in their newsroom this is the workplace, not a social-justice seminar on campus," Cotton told Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."

    This is a developing story; check back for updates. Fox News' Ronn Blitzer and Ben Florance contributed to this report.

    Well, I guess the NY Times has never been accused of being "fair and balanced." LOL
